Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 8.26.32 PMOur current south-southwest swell is expected to linger. Meanwhile, models continue to show a couple of tropical systems flaring up to the southwest which could generate swell for the islands. Will keep an eye on it.

East-northeast swell mix is expected through Friday. Solid shot of north-northeast expected to build overnight Friday and peak late Saturday into early Sunday.

Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
